Wish Wish Wish!

Happy Tuesday my dollhearts! I hope your weekend was bliss!?! Am starting today as I did nothing all weekend (except watch non-stop movies in bed in between my daughter's drama classes)  & needed to play catch up on Monday to make up for it. The weather is still cold & wet here, so keeping busy is much needed. I've got some pretties that are on my shopping list lately, I hope you enjoy them, I shall be around to your blogs as well, have a marvellous day,

Loves & Loves

The Shopping List

1. Lazy Oaf Perfect Match Dress - I've loved this dress for a long time now & it's on sale at a serious discount, might snap it up. Perfect bold pattern & I can mix any colours I want with it.

2. Betsey Johnson Telephone Bag - Am obsessed with novelty bags and this one is just too perfect. Will be coming in stock soon :)

3. Flamingo Candles Cheesecake Crunch Candle - this has a lush mix of brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa, maple, walnut, citrus & caramel. I LOVE cheesecake & this one won't go straight to my hips & backside, haha!

4. LeVero Haters Gonna Hate Hairband - Le Vero is two designers from Tokyo, Japan. They make headbands, home items, bags and such. This is their new black 'Haters' headband. I have one in gold. (You'll see soon on the blog) I love these so much, I need to get the 'Lovers' headband as well. They ship worldwide. Their shop is so cute, a must see!

5. Irregular Choice Late Night Shoes - I adore these, the red heart shape on the top is perfection. Plus, the zigzag design with glitter is the icing on the cake. Such perfect dainty shoes. 

6. Lime Crime Unicorn Lipstick ; I'm on a lipstick trip at the moment, I want to buy lots and lots of lippies. And I want them in all kinds of crazy colours too. Lime Crime do some really amazing colours, plus, the packaging has unicorns on it, so it's perfect. 

7. Karen Mabon Eve Necklace ;  Karen is a designer from Scotland that I ventured upon a few weeks ago. She creates some really unique and quirky scarves & jewellery tinged with the unexpected.  This is the 'Eve' necklace, the world's first bad girl as it's described. The really cool scarves on her site feature skulls, dancing ladies, Glasgow scenes, sweeties & other quirky bits on them. 

8. Irregular Choice Lucky Lady Boots - I love good pair of boots in the Autumn/Wintery times and old fashioned style boots are a favourite, as soon as I seen these, I was in love. The bows, the glittery metallic material give a 'old' style boot a very modern look. They're wonderful :)

Summer to Autumn Transitions

Happy Friday my darlings!! I hope you had a wonderful week...all ready for the weekend!?! I know I am :) Today is my oldest daughter's (Saffron) birthday, so I may not be around too much today, but I will catch up with all of your blogs later on & through the weekend :)) I have a big cake to make :))

But for today, I wanted to leave you with a Summer to Fall Transition Mood Board type thing that I was tagged to do by the marvellous Martina of M's Art Impressions (do check her blog, she's an amazing artist). To show what colours to move to, to make your Summer to Autumn wardrobe perfect! Now, I'm not into trends and I don't even change my wardrobe entirely to different shades during seasons, I always wear what I want when I feel like wearing it. I am more of a mood dresser. 

Most people when summer passes, instantly toss out all their amazing colours and go straight to the beige, creams, neutral colours & that's perfectly fine if you love them, but for me I get bored and start to feel claustrophobic really quickly. I need to continue having colours especially in Autumn/Winter seasons as the grey weather dampens my mood greatly. While, I will continue wearing pastels (rebel that I am) I will bring in lots more vibrant and happy colours to balance my wardrobe and also mix in patterns that I love and accent them with various colours when I don't feel like being head to toe in bright colours as an alternative. So, below you will find some favourite examples of what I mean. I hope you enjoy them & do tell me what colours, patterns or items you are transitioning into your wardrobe for the season changes!?! Also, since I was tagged in this, I am letting anyone who wishes to do this have a go too :)

Have a wonderful weekend dolls

My Summer Kind of Look

During the warmer season, I wore a lot of pastels like below, sweet & happy colours. While I will continue to wear them, I will just wear them less as it gets dirty too easy.

My Autumn/Winter Transition Look

While I will, as I said continue to wear pastels, I will bring in deeper, richer shades of pinks & other colours too. Bright and happy. Also if pinks are not your thing, you can do bright shades of Turquoise, Yellows, Reds, Greens, Purples and they will all fit perfectly with blacks, winter whites and neutrals too. The idea is just to add pops of colour if head to toe colour isn't your thing. The main objective is to be yourself and be happy in what you're wearing! Oooh & Glitter...there is always time for glittery pieces too :) 

BOLD Colours

BOLD Patterns
I love pattern, I used to be too timid to wear such bold patterns, but now I just want the loudest patterns ever, haha :) Stripes are happiness & I adore polka dots. Don't be afraid to mix them together, you can wear them in one uniform colour or go crazy and have many colours together, that's the fun in pattern - pretty much anything goes :)
